This course pushes our 5km limit just a touch, but had to be included in the series, as its a fantastic route. Mosquito Bite is another course beginning on Mosquito Creek, runners will head up toward the Baden Powell crossing the bridge over the creek before heading left up the cascades trail. Runners then intersect briefly with Dreamweaver before embarking up the Executioner ascent trail that eventually tops out on Grouse Mountain Highway. Runners then connect onto the Peer Gynt trail for the long ascent up to Mt Fromme.
